Do you Gyotaku? My FIRST graders do!

Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is the traditional method of Japanese fish printing, dating from the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing may have been used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an artform on its own.

First graders are learning the art of GYOTAKU!  Check back again for their completed fish prints surrounded with warm/cool colors!
